as well. two, it has to become a priority for our united states senate, and for harry reid, he has got to begin to work with not simply republicans, they are not going to vote for these democrats, but for democrats, the moderate democrats who are afraid ever standing up and voting for good, progressive judges. he has to approach those moderate democrats. he's got to butt recess those democrats. we have to give those democrats, and we know who they are, confidence in standing up for good judges. we need to ensure that the senators on the senate judiciary committee step up to the plate as well. now we know that justice sotomayor was a little bit tim id at those hearings -- timid at those hearings, but she had a job to do, and that was to get confirmed. the senators on those panels have to articulate, as everyone has said, a very broad vision of why judges are important, why courts are important, and why we need strong progressives on these courts. so we have all -- we all have our bit to do. i am confident that people listening will do our job, and we have to ensure that at the end of ei
for harry reid or nancy pelosi. those are two very critically important votes. regardless of how they vote on anything else, one guy will vote one way and the other will vote the other. who would you prefer they vote for? it is not a game of purity anymore. i wish it could be but it is not. it is a game of the evils of to loesser's. you have to pick the lesser evil of the two. >> thank you. >> i am very concerned about what will be happening with the census. apparently the census will be under the control of the white house. they are hiring all these people from a corn to be census takers. there was an article in the wall street journal that talked about there is a question of them counting illegal immigrants in the census. i wonder how this will if -- affect elections going forward and if there's a thing we can do about it? i assume it will affected not in our favor. >> my understanding is that there is some compelling laws that even the white house will have to comply with on that. that they were not able to pull it from the commerce program. let's not kid ourselves. they will still cont
that is not left or right. when you get back to washington i would like you to tell nancy pelosi and mr. harry reid that we can take all the money and put it into health care and it will not fix the problem until we put investment into prevention and wellness, that will drive costs down. i have a friend at duke university next week for cancer treatment. we are better than that to tell us must wait six months. most americans value life. the value the life at one as it represents all. thank you for your conservative leadership. [applause] >> thank you. a good part of any health care reform must include wellness and prevention. going to get a physical every year to detect problems before they become serious. the healthcare provider earlier made the analogy to get in your brakes replaced in the car. well, when you get your oil change they actually check the brakes, tires. we should do the same for health care. unfortunately, this bill from the house does not address it wellness programs. when you talk to good businesses they talk about on his programs -- the talk about wellness programs for their emplo
you for coming. my ime is harry reid and the majority whip, dick durbin both stated that they would not be opposed to passing healthcare reform if they don't have the 60 votes necessary to bypass the filibuster and that they would pass it using a budget reconciliation. i'm wondering what you think about that and whether or not that would be a feasible solution if they don't have the votes. i don't think that's a good idea, for the record. >> the process known as budget reconciliation is a procedural mechanism unique to the senate that would allow for a way to get around a filibuster. filibuster requires 60 to bake it. when something is moved through reconciliation, it just requires 51 votes, so it is a process that is available. it is a process, however is subject to technical rules within the senate in terms of what may be considered under reconciliation and without getting too much into the weeds, there is so much contained in the healthcare bill that came out of the health committee that would not be subject to reconciliation, for instance, the wellness and prevention pieces. wha
harry reid and them, and he tears right into the public option for health care. during that time -- if you don't believe it just go to canada. he goes on fox news and just sits there with some 40 doctors they got. the talk about how bad the canadian medicine is. now the question is, does mitch mcconnell no his absolute stone cold line cannot or does he just like all the time? which is it? anybody would know his line about that if he is watched -- if he watched the for cigna. does he purposely lied all the time? guest: no, i do not think his line and in those statements, but i congratulate the caller on noting one of his most important tactics since he has been republican leader. he does it use his speeches, often his morning business-type speeches on the senate floor to consistently address an issue. the first to did in this session of congress was the closure of guantanamo. he hit that hard, consistently over a long period of time, and i think have some effect. he is doing the same now on health care reform. i think his office would be happy to provide the caller with several in
oppose your party on voting issues. why do you remain the party of nancy pelosi and harry reid and all of these people who continue to make us feel like we have to fight for our american freedom? >> well, because it's -- [applause] >> we can both stereotype. in the past weeks there are three high-profile republicans caught with their mistress. i won't say that all republicans have mistresses. i won't stereotype, and i am in many chambers and my friend is in the all of fame, and it doesn't make me any of those things. i am pro-life and vote for that every time. >> did you say that you are with this bill -- >> one at a time. >> did you say you were working on this bill with shurmer? >> no, chuck -- shurler. and keith shurler came in second with the heisman trophy, but that doesn't me that. >> your buddy out of new york, he's planning for this health care plan with a vote of 50, can you fight for that for us in mississippi? >> sir, i regret that i will have to ask you to repeat your question, i could not hear you. >> all right, the question was that he's threatened to ram this health car
